“Hi Mommy. Yes. No. I’m in media.”

TikTok users loved his priorities.

I love that he didn’t apologise either, like the press were the distraction.

She raised him to be the man he is. The love is there!

We don’t play about our sons & daughters. U alive? Answer my call😏🙃

RESPECT TO HIM for not declining

Bro just said “Hi Mommy” in the most manly way possible. Respect.

Just like a Mom!😂 You tell her you doing something and she keep going.😂

There was a very different vibe when Neil Lennon answered journalist Michael Grant‘s phone during a Celtic press conference.
